Posted by Steve Ruddock on Sep 11, 2012 Posted in Tournament News | No Comments »

This is the second straight day that has required a tournament report, and if you recall I commented on the potential headline of “Chris Ferguson wins UKIPT Newcastle”.

So without any further adieu, here is a look at some tournament results from around the globe:

1. Christopher Ferguson – £87,640
